WhatsApp Plus and other unofficial clients are hot topics when it comes to popular messaging apps. They can cause disastrous consequences for your account if you aren’t careful with how you use them.
We recommend that you be extra aware of people who want to report or block your account – this means that if someone sends enough complaints about you (even if they have no evidence), their complaints will result in an investigation against your profile.
It is illegal? Since different nations have slightly different laws regarding what is considered “unauthorized access,” the answer is nobody knows. But in case of unauthorized programs, such as WhatsApp mods, don’t risk anything.
There have been several people who have been misinformed about the legality and illegality surrounding WhatsApp Plus. It has no legal standing and does not exist at all, legally speaking.
Since it was created using reverse engineering on a legal app like Whatsapp Messenger, which contains restrictions against such activities, its legality has already been proven to be null. However, I would caution users from downloading this application.
It has never released its code for customization by third parties. WhatsApp Inc., India’s most popular messaging app, does not provide its code for third parties.
Although the original author of the software was not directly harmed, doing so without permission is illegal.
Yet, they requested that all links to forums that provided APKs and downloads on request be removed.
The use of WhatsApp Plus is not illegal, but there are risks involved.
The Mod user community has had trouble using WhatsApp. A week before Christmas 2015, they banned multiple accounts created with modified versions of the app and forced them to uninstall and download the official version of the app to keep using it.
While there were some signs that WhatsApp loosening its grip on usage policies after, MOD users’ accounts are still blocked regularly by WhatsApp one year after it was introduced.
so don’t think your account is exempt just because it wasn’t created from a modded installation.
The makers of MODs are being targeted by social media giants like Instagram. The gang are trying to upgrade to the official app, install the conditional banning, and block accounts associated with their phone number.
